How do I remove the parking brake cable?

I need to take the parking brake cable loose to install my spring hanger. I cant for the life of me figure out how to take it loose at the frame. Any Tips?

Under the truck on the drivers side there is a union where two cables are joined. If you pull down hard on the cable there to put slack in the cable you should be able to disconnect one end of the union and hopefully that will be enough to route it where you need it.

Yeah I finally figured it out lol. Thanks for responding though.

I pulled slack and clamped it off with a pair of vice grips. Gave me all the slack I needed.

No problem. Let me know when you get the 08 springs installed. If it improves the ride a bunch I would like to do it to my truck.
